LEMON CUSTARD PIE
Nancy J. Patrykus
Granny made them all the time...From her hand written recipe I tweaked it, with less sugar and added lemon juice for a tart taste. Hers was always way to sweet for me.
I baked this on 7/2/12..today 7/4/12 it dissappeared!
Just went poof!
right before my own eyes!

How to Make LEMON CUSTARD PIE
- In a bowl mix together sugars,& salt.
Scald milk, remove from stove. Beat together corn starch, lemon juice,and beaten eggs .
Beat well in to the hot milk.
I cooked all for a couple minutes on the stove...stirring all the time., to start the setting process.
****Optional...you can add a couple drops of yellow food coloring..to your liking. Only for color.
MIX in well....
- Pour into the crust..
Sprinkle top with nutmeg.
Place on center rack.
I put a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack under the pie...incase of drips!
Bake for abour 50-60 minutes...
When half way baked..carefully cover edges with aluminum foil.....so they do not get to brown...like mine did!!
Test with a knife.
edge of pie will thicken first...center will be almost set.
Remove to a rack to cool.
Refrigerate till serving time.
